Gerald Schroeder, an MIT-trained scientist who has worked in both physics and biology, has emerged in recent years as one of the most popular and accessible apostles for the melding of science and religion. He first reconciled science and faith as different perspectives on a single whole in "The Science of God." Now, in "The Hidden Face of God, " Schroeder takes a bold step forward, to show that science, properly understood, provides positive reasons for faith.

From the wisdom encoded in DNA and analyzed by information science, to the wisdom unveiled in the fantastic complexity of cellular life, to the wisdom inherent in human consciousness, "The Hidden Face of God" offers a tour of the best of modern science. This fascinating volume will open a world of science to religious believers, and it will cause skeptics to rethink some of their deepest beliefs.

Industry Reviews

Bryce Christensen Booklist Schroeder takes the widespread perception that science disproves religion and turns it on its head....This book deserves widespread circulation among readers still alive to the hidden harmonies of the universe.
